Hormone Health Basics

More and more of our nutrition clients are interested in learning more about hormone health!

Are you?

Many things influence hormone health.

Four basics you need to know about hormone health:

Factor  #1: Gut Health

80% of our immune system is in our gut.

Did you know our gut is also known as our second brain?!

Pro Tip: Try to incorporate probiotics regularly.

Factor #2: Liver Health

The liver is our body’s filtration system, removing toxins.

Pro Tip: Switch plastic containers for glass and avoid reheating food in plastic containers in the microwave.

Factor #3: Inflammation

Inflammation is our body’s natural response to stress (from injury and the food we eat).

Pro Tip: Increase omega-3 intake, which helps fight inflammation (wild-caught salmon, almonds, walnuts, and pecans).

Factor #4: Blood-Sugar Balance

When we eat carbohydrates, our blood sugar increases. The rate and duration of the blood sugar spike is essential when trying to prevent chronic disease. Pairing macronutrients together (carbohydrates with protein and fat help to decrease the spike and shorten the duration). Foods that are high in fiber and low in sugar are the preferred sources of carbohydrates.

Pro Tip: Balancing your macronutrients, following the plate method (½ plate non-starchy veggies, ¼ protein, and ¼ starch will ensure you get the protein and fiber you need to help blood sugar balance.
